How does it feel to be part of a team building some of the world’s biggest serially produced wind turbine blades? Meet Amy – she joined us on the Isle of Wight in 2013 and is now a Group Lead managing a blade-building team.
“Every team is different. All capabilities and all characteristics are catered for – and it works because we have a common goal. We need teamwork to build these amazing 80m blades and we all need to share the same values, which means turning up on time and working together. We have a great team atmosphere. There’s nothing a woman can’t do. My advice is the same to everyone thinking about applying for a role here – if you have a can-do attitude and want to be a part of an industry that is making a positive difference to the world, you’ll be just right the person.”
